Great Getaway

5 of 5

The home was a perfect getaway for three couples over Thanksgiving week. What a treat to be able to swim in November! There were lots of great outdoor spaces to relax, as well as a comfortable living room. It was a short drive to downtown, which was convenient.

A haven for relaxation

5 of 5

Such a good place to relax in the beautiful sunshine of Palm Springs. Loved the outdoor couch, chaise lounges, pool, and hot tub. Many hours were spent reading in the pool or hot tub. Very cute decor and comfortable beds. Great TV for movie watching. And the kitchen such cute glassware and plates, they match! Amazing for a rental property. Nice quiet neighborhood. Easy driving distance to Joshua Tree NP. Would love to stay here again.

Really beautiful property

4 of 5

Close to a lot of activities, beautiful home. The pool was a bit small, the water to the property is a bit hard and doesn’t run clear, and we had a bit of an issue with the hot water in the bathrooms but overall it was a great vacation spot.

Weekend Getaway

5 of 5

Had a lovely weekend getaway with 5 girls. We loved the overall theme and decoration of the property. the backyard with so nice and quiet with a great view of the mountains. The only small annoyance was the living room area stays pretty warm even with the AC. I think the back slider and front window would benefit from thermal film.

Wonderful weekend

5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful weekend at The Great Escape. The house is beautifully furnished and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need! The pool was smaller then expected but ended up being the perfect size for our whole party to hang out and cool down. Hint: There's a small sign over the a/c control that says to "keep the doors shut". We though this meant the outside doors but it is actually referring to the bedroom doors. Close the bedroom doors and the house will stay much cooler. Acme House Company is hands down the most responsive rental company I have EVER had the pleasure of working with!! We can't wait to return to The Great Escape!!

Girls' Weekend Fun

5 of 5

My 5 girlfriends and I had an amazing time! The house and yard were clean and spacious, and it was nice to have one bathroom per bedroom. The only detriments were that the living room was still a bit warm even with the A/C on, and the pool was smaller than it seems in the photos but since there were only 6 of us it was fine. We would definitely stay there again.

Great Stay

Great overall stay. House was one of the cleanest we have stayed in. Loved having the soft music playing as we walked in. Check in and check out we’re a breeze. Great location. Very quiet neighborhood. Pool was a little smaller than we expected but we would definitely stay here again. Loved the cool sixties vibe of this house.

We had a fabulous stay and will definitely go back.

Perfect oasis in the desert!

5 of 5

If you’re looking for the perfect place to relax and enjoy your stay in Palm Springs, look no further than the Great Escape. Located just a few minutes from the downtown area, it’s convenient to restaurants, shopping and and other activities Palm Springs offers. The house has two master suites and another bedroom with nearby full bath, which was perfect for our party of two couples and a single. The house was beautifully decorated and fully stocked, and the outdoor area had everything - pool, hot tub, fire pit, seating, waterfall - everything you need to lounge and relax. Acme rentals was wonderful to deal with. Our coffee pot broke and they delivered another one to us within an hour. Check in was perfect. They even let one couple leave their luggage at their office after we checked out because they had a late flight. Would definitely book this place again.

Wonderful Getaway

5 of 5

We had a great long weekend at this property. The property management was very attentive and helpful. So many times, when a property lists a heated pool, it is not warm enough, but we were pleasantly surprised that the pool was warm enough to be able to enjoy even in December. Both the indoor and outdoor gas fireplaces were an enjoyable part of the property as well. We hope to stay again in the not too distant future.

We stayed at this property for 30 days and couldn't have been more happy with the entire experience. The hosts were attentive, caring, and thought of everything. It is so much better than going through a property management company. This is their house and they treat it as their own home and treated us as guests. The house and grounds had everything we could need. The neighborhood is quiet, residential, and friendly. We will return for sure!

Overall Comment The place was great. The beds were super comfy. The outdoor area was awesome. The pool was slightly smaller than the images portray but not a deal-breaker. Just a heads up, the pool guy does come every other day to treat the pool.
